Lubeznik Center for the Arts: ArtBash 2018

Lubeznik Center for the Arts - Michigan City


Lubeznik Center for the Arts


Lubeznik-Center-for-the-Arts-ArtBash-2018June 23, 2018, 5:30 PM (CDT) Lubeznik Center for the Arts (LCA) will host its premier annual fundraising event, ArtBash 2018 "When the Lights Glow Down," at Blue Chip Stardust Event Center in Michigan City, IN. All proceeds directly support LCA's mission to enrich the quality of life in the region through the arts. Admissions and donations to the event support participation in academically-enhanced art classes and field trips for local youth and acclaimed contemporary arts exhibitions.

The emcee for the evening will be Michigan City native, Mary Ann Bergerson Ahern, NBC 5 News Chicago Political Reporter. Attendees will have the opportunity to bid on unique items and experiences in the silent auction; buy into a "wine and spirits grab" for an opportunity to take home some very expensive bottles; enjoy the glow in the dark decor; and dance the night away to the DJ spinning the best dance music of the 60s to the present.

LCA Executive Director, Janet Bloch, states "LCA provides outstanding art exhibitions for our region, such as the upcoming 'Warhol: Icon & Influence', and creative opportunities that ignite the imagination of our community. Daily admission to the Art Center is free to all. Each year, nearly 2000 students come through our doors to experience the power of the arts for educational and uplifting learning tours - nearly all of them are provided free of charge. Your participation ensures that no school or student is ever turned away due to the inability to pay for a field trip or an art class. Our vision for the future is to be the premiere cultural attraction in our region and you can turn this vision into a reality. Your support of the ArtBash 2018 is an investment in the development of our youth and an investment in the future success of our region."

Last year's event sold out with a record crowd, so don't wait to purchase tickets! LCA is offering special pricing for early commitments through June 8. Individual tickets are currently available for $150 and tables of 10 for $1500. Starting June 9 prices increase to $165 for individual tickets and $1650 for tables.

Ron Meer, Mayor of Michigan City, states "I would like to show my support for the Lubeznik Center for the Arts and their annual ArtBash 2018. Lubeznik Center for the Arts is a pillar on the north side of Michigan City and our ever strengthening Uptown Arts District. Michigan City is fast becoming a destination community and the Lubeznik Center for the Arts has played a major role in this reality by providing a distinctly unique attraction within our community."
